Sitefinity Server Architecture for HA

Hi Experts,

I'm planning to get Sitefinity professional edition for my website that requires HA.

I have 2 x load balanced web servers to serve a website, e.g.

I'm planning to host the Sitefinity CMS (as in one of the web servers but only allow access from local corporate network (using IP Whitelisting).

2 x database servers (mirrored, active-passive, for disaster recovery).

May I know if this is achievable in Sitefinity.

I couldn't find much documentation about this.

 The information on this page is confusing to me:

It says that I need a shared distributed file server to host the Sitefinity files and codebase. Why??

I'm new to Sitefinity and used to Sitecore. Please advise.

Hi Richardson,

You can take a look over the NLB documentation articles:
Deploy your website in a NLB environment
Sitefinity load balancing

Note that both servers have point to one database. Than this database could be replicated as you mentioned for disaster recovery needs.

I hope this helps.
